Prosecutors say Johnson was arrested after delivering 12 kilograms of cocaine he received from Washington state, the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports ( http://bit.ly/wv8pSp).

The indictment alleges the three had been dealing drugs since December 2010, sending an unnamed conspirator to Anchorage to pick up cocaine and for delivery to Fairbanks.
